Do you have garden space that you don't use or finding hard to look after?
Could your garden be used to grow food but you don't have time?
Do you want to grow your own food but have no where to grow it?
If so we may be able to help by matching you up with a suitable plot or grower.
How does it work?
The co-ordinator will meet up with both the land owner and the grower to find out what their requirements are E.g. size of plot/plots offered, single grower/ families, location etc.
The parties involved will be invited to meet up before any decisions are made and the growers invites to view the plot.
Growers will need to pay a small annual sum for public liability insurane against accidents whilst working on someone else's land.
Growers are not expected to maintain the rest of the garden but should treat it with respect.
As a grower you are expected to give a certain percentage of your produce to the garden owner. No money changes hands,
Growers should be passionate about growing food.
There might be quite a wait before suitable plots are matched up with suitable people.
Benefits for the garden owner:
A share of the fresh, no air miles, home grown produce
A tidier managed garden plot
Benefits to the gardener:
A new or revisited hobby
Proudly picked fresh garden produce
Exercise in the great outdoors
